5 Easy Ways to Update Your Bedroom

You spend about one-third of your life in bed, so it makes sense for your bedroom to be a comfortable, relaxing space. Unfortunately, many people’s bedrooms go by the wayside because guests don’t see them. Don’t allow your bedroom to become dull and unappealing. There are many easy ways to update your bedroom, and Design 5 Ltd. shares five of our favorites.

Clean Up

It’s not the most exciting way to spend a Saturday, but you’ll appreciate the outcome. Clutter causes anxiety, disrupting your sleep; remove any items you don’t use regularly. Once you see what decluttering one space can do, you may move on to other areas of your home. If your bedroom is on the small side, a mirror will reflect light to make the room feel more spacious without creating clutter.

Go Green

We don’t lack lush greenery and tropical plants in Hawaii, but they aren’t just for the great outdoors. Natural elements, like plants and water, can help you feel calm and relaxed. Houseplants also purify the air and release oxygen at night, improving sleep. Benefits aside, they’re lovely to look at.

Upgrade Your View

There’s never a wrong time to refresh your window treatments. The right shades or blinds pull a room together and block light so you can sleep in later. Use Vignette® Modern Roman Shades to add softness and subtle sophistication or Provenance® Woven Wood Shades with a room-darkening liner to enhance the organic vibe brought by the plants. Custom window treatments have an upscale aesthetic you won’t find in a retail store.

Add Local Flavor

Visit a local farmers market to find one-of-a-kind artistic accents for your bedroom. While you’re there, pick up a few bouquets -fresh flowers are another fantastic way to brighten up any space instantly. Scent affects our senses in powerful ways, so be on the lookout for essential oils or candles made with lavender, vanilla, or jasmine. Farmers' markets are also an excellent place to find unique, homemade treats for your special someone to add to a breakfast-in-bed tray.

Invest in Your Rest

Your bedroom can be clutter-free and beautifully decorated, but none of that will matter if your bed is subpar. Invest in a high-quality mattress and sheets for optimum comfort. Cotton sheets with a high thread count will help keep you cool on those warm island nights. A basic platform bed and coordinating headboard will give your bedroom the luxe feel of a chic hotel without taking up much space.
